As an engineering manager for the App team at PodMe you will together with your product counterpart be responsible for the listening experience that consists of our apps.

We are growing quickly and this role will have a focus on making sure we are building our apps in the best way possible.

You will manage and empower a close-knit, well functioning team of developers and QA engineers to push ideas all the way to implementation and evaluation.
